Biden’s Africa Strategy

President Biden announced the “U.S. Strategy Toward Sub-Saharan Africa” on August 8, 2022. In this episode, we examine the goals of this strategy and how it differs from how previous administrations have approached U.S. relations with Africa. What tangible actions will ensure the success of the administration’s strategy? What does the realization of this vision mean for the future of the region? Dr. Landry Signé joins us to discuss the Biden administration’s Africa strategy.

Landry Signé is a senior fellow in the Global Economy and Development Program and the Africa Growth Initiative at the Brookings Institution, where he focuses on the political economy of Africa and developing countries, state capacity and policy implementation, and global governance and sustainable development. He also serves as the co-chair of the World Economic Forum’s Regional Action Group on Africa and is the Executive Director of and Professor at Arizona’s State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management in Washington, DC.
